    Casal Quartett
    “the birth of the string quartet I”

    Works from Scarlatti to Haydn

    Die Entstehung der wichtigsten Gattung der Kammermusik ist untrennbar mit Haydn und Boccherini verbunden. Wie ein Lauffeuer verbreitete sich die Faszination des Streichquartetts. Neben seinem verehrten Zeitgenossen Haydn wurde Mozart dessen wichtigster Exponent im 18. Jahrhundert. Aber bereits vor 1750 entwickelten europaweit verschiedene Komponisten die Loslösung der Vierstimmigkeit vom Basso continuo, allen voran die Italiener Scarlatti mit dem frühesten Beispiel eines Streicherwerkes ohne Cembalo und Giovanni B. Sammartini, als Mittler zwischen Barock und Klassik. Die aufregenden Neuerungen Telemanns und der beiden Wiener Komponisten, wären ohne diese Vorbilder nicht denkbar gewesen.

    Comparison of Interpretations
    Goldmund Quartet & Meta4 string quartet
    Oliver Wille moderation

    Oliver Wille, chamber music professor in Hanover and member of the Kuss Quartet, sharpens the ear for how strongly the personality, attitude and composition of an ensemble influences the interpretation of works. Two string quartets explore one and the same movement from the musical world literature and determine their individual readings in exchange with the presenter and the audience.
